Henry Speck Jr.

Kwakwaka'wakw

(1937- )

Henry Speck Jr. is the son of Henry Speck a renowned graphic artist often attributed as the first artist to produce limited edition prints and drawings for sale. Some of these drawings were scenes of traditional life and ceremonies and others were respectful images of the bridge between Christianity and aboriginal culture. Henry Speck Jr. began carving while working as a logger. His employer was so impressed by these early pieces that he invested in the tools and encouraged him to concentrate on carving. He is largely a self-taught Kwakwaka’wakw (Kwakiutl) carver with now more than a quarter century of carving experience. Henry is delighted that now young carvers come to him for advice.
